- Bodmin Moor
- British Topographical Series
- by E.C.Axford
- Gilpin, an eighteenth-century traveller to Cornwall, described Bodmin Moor as 'a barren and naked country, in all respects as uninteresting as can be well conceived'.
- Mr Axford's book shows clearly that this appraisment is wide of the mark. After a general description of this highly indivdual area the author examines the geology, archaeology and industrial archaeology of which so much remains, and considers the conflicting interests for use of the moor by the farmer, the industrialist and the holidaymaker.
- The 'churchtowns' of the moorland parishes, a cluster of villages which are amongst the most attractive in the country, are examined in detail, and in one chapter the development of the moorland parish of St. Neots is traced since the earliest times
